Counterweights are required in Internal Halyard Systems to assist in the lowering of flags. They also ensure the flag hangs and flies properly in winds by keeping the flag taught. Three sizes allow the proper choice of counterweight based on wind zone and flag size flown.
Constructed of steel covered in a thick plastic coating, Concord American Flagpole's patented Counterweights are designed with heavyduty, horizontal attaching bars. This design more efficiently distributes the stress load when compared to industry standard round-eye ends which concentrate the load in a single location. Dual attachment points in all sizes also provide a significantly increased safety level when compared to single attachment designs. This is the longest lasting, safest Counterweight the industry has to offer!
